Come Down Here, Elvis!

The old world broke open and a new world emerged

In these our times of wonder
What can we do but shake
And shake and shake like thunder
These times until they break

for the 90th anniversary of the Russian Revolution

Destruction of the barrier

The singer finds himself deceived
this relationship went well beyond robbery
they might pose the question of the dialectic
The ailanthus tree's feathery leaves sway
the supposed sensitivity of bees

The concept of being elf-shot
The city is flawed
they have common roots of thought
What are chips?
What is repressed is unconscious

The intellectuals were the fools
The beadle had her seized and searched
it has an indisputable symptomatic vein
Then came a horrible spectacle
A knife spinning round on the table

hedgehogs sucked milk from cows' udders
"That's the future"
Weakness invites disease
Such marriages were cheap
Efforts to exterminate it failed

But there's a trace of magic there
None of this was possible under the ancien régime
raise a howl to the skies
But let's not forget the rat
Only reported a handful of times

wear a snakeskin around the head
for a long time in latrines
the movement of a given phenomenon
Bonfires were lit
it holds out for "paradise now"

animals provide an irrational stumbling block
the genitalia, pockets, tongue and mind
An incredible argument!
I'd never seen anything like it
Other symbolic actions were recommended

Other informants warned against breaking things
a dead man would be propped up next to a table
study the fight of both factions historically
A hatchet scar across his face
the destruction of the barrier

Playing something very like MK Shibek's Meaning Through Chance in the company of Paul Garon Blues and the Poetic Spirit, Peter Linebaugh The London Hanged, Leon Trotsky In Defence of Marxism, Robert Sullivan Rats, and Steve Roud The Penguin Guide to the Superstitions of Britain and Ireland.

I was imagining a device for the simultaneous translation of dreams

A Chapter of Horrors

Prostitutes and women of the lowest class
Dead kings and pious dead men
